Today, NEOS products are available to workers across a broad spectrum of industries, including logistics, transportation, utilities, law enforcement, agriculture, and the public sector. The NEOS Overshoe offers an extra level of comfort, durability, insulation and traction to help keep feet and shoes dry and protected in the harshest environments.
